The curriculum for the Residency Program at the University of Florida Department of Pathology, Immunology and Laboratory Medicine is organized into a basic four-year training period that prepares residents to practice pathology. Throughout the basic training period, under faculty supervision, each resident will:
- Perform at least 50 autopsies;
- Sign-out more than 2,000 surgical pathology specimens;
- Examine more than 1,500 cytology specimens; and
- Perform more than 200 operating room consultations (frozen sections).
Most subjects that you would want to do an elective in, we have built into our schedule. We have a schedule template for PGY1-4 years but there is certainly some personalization that can be applied based on interests.
